Optimising Governance, Reporting & Decision Making

2- day | Wednesdays, 11 & 18 May 2022 | 10am – 2pm AEST | Online

Training Overview

Further Creating Modern, Transparent, Ethical Decision Making in the Public Sector

Now more than ever, leaders are accountable for effective decision-making that moves their department towards defined goals and desired outcomes. Having clear lines of accountability and an effective, defined decision-making model that aligns with Departmental Policies and Procedures is paramount to successfully delivering on expectations and accountabilities.

Through an innovative mix of lecture-style presentations, interactive group exercises, and expert feedback, participants in the Optimising Governance, Reporting & Decision Making online training will explore the fundamentals of governance application in their own work environments, break down challenges and barriers that keep the back-office fixed on redundant approaches, and envisage future ways to optimise key aspects of their role that are cost-effective, viable, and of a standard that meets and maintains compliance at a departmental and government level.
